Schrodinger Consciousness

Max Planck
“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” [Nobel Laureate Physicist, Max Planck, Father of Quantum Theory]

Sri Bhagavan
"When consciousness is purged of all its contamination, what remains is life - pure consciousness or God." Sri Bhagavan See Ego, Error

In the laboratory of Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) at Princeton University/USA, research on the topic "mind-machine-interaction" has been ongoing since the late 1970s. As far back as the late 80s, extensive studies proved that diodes with white noise might be used as an interface between man and machine. Since 1998, worldwide about 50 such diodes with white noise have been measuring not only the consciousness of individuals but also the global consciousness of mankind within a study called "Global Consciousness Project". The results have been published and indicate synchronized reaction of all diodes to incidents of worldwide interest such as the war in Iraq, Lady Diana's funeral or the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001 on the World Trade Centre in New York. http://www.experiencefestival.com/a/Morphic_fields/id/10320

"The immortal EGO is an entity of which man can become thoroughly conscious while here on earth, but to arrive at this consciousness necessitates the entire abandonment of all the petty considerations involved in the transient and subordinate EGO, which is the only self of which the unenlightened man is conscious. Let him who desires to reach this inner consciousness enter his inner sanctuary, wherever that sanctuary may be; it matters not whether it be his own chamber, the open field, the mountain top, the seashore, the stately cathedral, or the humble village chapel. Let him realize fully the transient character of his own personality and contrast therewith his eager longing to know the immortal. Let him concentrate his whole consciousness upon his personality, fully arousing all his personal conditions as a distinct individual; then with all the aspiration of which this personality is capable, let him beseech of the immortal EGO - which is eternal and does not incarnate, but overshadows all incarnations, waiting until one is formed capable of illumination, to whom it may reveal itself - to consider him worthy of illumination, and according to his preparedness to receive illumination will it then be granted. He who asks this, knows not what he asks; for were the prayer answered, life henceforth for such an one would be a weary round, as Hamlet says: "to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow brings in this weary round of life"; for, having seen the glory of this immortal EGO, all else seems so base, so commonplace and mean, so inglorious, that oftentimes the personality has utterly collapsed when thrown back from the radiant vision of this glorious immortal entity possessed by all alike, though scarcely dreamed of by any save the very few who, discontented with the ignorance and emptiness of terrene existence, aspire to know the great reality of the supernal. As the incarnations of every entity, passing through certain orders of experience through numerous lives, inevitably culminate in this moment of conscious realization of the immortal entity; the Buddha says: "All shall reach the sunlit snows." [Amplitude of Force]

save in polarity with the idea of the infinite. Victor Cousin, in exhibiting the primary elements of the human consciousness, shows that there are two dualities. Let a man turn his attention in upon himself, he will find, first of all, the me and the not me as a dual conception. Apart from all details of information about the me or the not me, different persons know, some more, some less, about either or about the two, every infant, even in the very first moment of contact, is conscious of the me and the not me as an inevitable dual conception. But both of these are found in the limitation they impose on each other; and lo! there springs up here another idea, the idea of the limited - the finite; but this cannot be conceived apart from the simultaneous conception of the infinite; the finite has no meaning save as the pole or dual of the infinite. Here, then, is duality or polarity among the primary contents of the consciousness. And this but the beginning of the polarity of thought. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 42]

"In the consciousness of earthly or material forces there enters all the attributes of the physical, fleshy body. In the subconscious there enters the attributes of soul forces, and of the conscious forces. In the superconscious there enters the subconscious forces, and spiritual discernment and development." [Cayce (900-16)]

"For life, in its continuity, is that experience of the soul or entity - including its soul, its spirit, its superconsciousness, its subconscious, its physical consciousness, or its MATERIAL consciousness, in that as its DEVELOPMENT goes through the various experiences takes on more and more that ability of knowing itself to be itself, yet a portion of the Great Whole, or the One Creative Energy." [Cayce (900-426)]

"The spirit entity is a thing apart from any earthly connection in sleep, yet connected. For the earthly or material consciousness is ever tempered with material conditions; the superconsciousness with the consciousness between soul and spirit, and partakes of the spiritual forces principally. In consciousness we find only projections of subconscious and superconscious, which conditions project themselves in dreams, visions, unless entered into the superconscious forces. In the consciousness of earthly or material forces there enters all the attributes of the physical, fleshly body. In the subconscious there enters the attributes of soul forces, and of the conscious forces. In the superconscious there enters the subconscious forces, and spiritual discernment and development." [Cayce (900-16)]

"Hence it may truly be said that to be at-variance may bring sickness, dis-ease, disruption, distress in a physical body. It is true then that the mind may heal entirely by the spoken word, by the laying on of hands, dependent upon the CONSCIOUSNESS of the motivative forces in the individual body. Yet those requiring material expression to create a balance may necessitate drug, knife, water, heat, Electricity, or ANY of those forces that are yet what? What is the spirit? The MANIFESTATION OF GOD! The CREATIVE Force working in, with and upon what? The awareness, the interconsciousness of the BODY, the mind, the spirit, as separated in individuals! O that all would gain JUST that! and not feel, "Yes, I understand - but my desires and my body and my weaknesses and this or that - and I didn't do it." Who else did?" [Cayce (262-83)]

Q - "(Is it true) that the memory reveals itself some time after death to a spiritual-minded person, not only as related to the earthly life, or the remaining earthly thoughts of earthly life, but ALSO reveals itself as a self-unfoldment of ALL past experiences?"

A - "Correct. For life, in its continuity, is that experience of the soul or entity - including its soul, its spirit, its superconsciousness, its subconscious, its physical consciousness, or its MATERIAL consciousness, in that as its DEVELOPMENT goes through the various experiences takes on more and more that ability of knowing itself to be itself, yet a portion of the Great Whole, or the One Creative Energy." [Cayce (900-426)]

"Know in self, first this: Thou art body, mind and soul, a three-dimensional individual in a three-dimensional consciousness. Hence ye find the Godhead, to a consciousness of an individual in the earth plane, is three dimensions: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each are individual, and yet they are one. So with the body-consciousness: the body, the mind and the soul. Each have their attributes, each have their limitations, save the soul. Nothing may separate the soul from its source save the will of self." [Cayce (5089-3)]

"It (death) is not the end, then, because we pass from one room to another, from one consciousness to another. For, so is it proclaimed in that promise. Though we live in the physical consciousness, we pass - as this entity has oft - into those consciousnesses of Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus; for these are but stepping stones to the greater consciousness which He would have each soul attain in its relationships with and usage of its fellow men." [Cayce (2282-1)]

"Rest, play, work and think. Keep self attuned to consciousness of life in its entirety." [Cayce137-125]

"This becomes hard to conceive in the finite mind; as does the finite mind fail to grasp the lack of or NO time. Yet out of Time, Space, Patience, is it possible for the consciousness of the finite to KNOW the infinite." [Cayce 262-115]

Quantum Approaches to Consciousness
It is widely accepted that consciousness or, more generally, mental activity is in some way correlated to the behavior of the material brain. Since quantum theory is the most fundamental theory of matter that is currently available, it is a legitimate question to ask whether quantum theory can help us to understand consciousness. Several approaches answering this question affirmatively, proposed in recent decades, will be surveyed. It will be pointed out that they make different epistemological assumptions, refer to different neurophysiological levels of description, and use quantum theory in different ways. For each of the approaches discussed, problematic and promising features will be equally highlighted. http://www.quantumconsciousness.org/StanfordEncyclopediaarticle.htm

Erwin Schrödinger
Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms. For consciousness is absolutely fundamental. It cannot be accounted for in terms of anything else.” [Erwin Schrödinger]

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"Your own strong 'consciousness impulses' are life impulses. "They are highly creative electro-magnetic impulses!
"When they are of a virulent - violent - aggressive - murderous nature - they emit electrical particles of virulent, violent, aggressive, murderous CONSCIOUSNESS which take form as virulent viruses in the air, spreading from one innocent person to another.
"What is born and nurtured in the diseased mind eventually takes on form in the physical world." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 4]

"LIFE and CONSCIOUSNESS, I realized, were one and the same thing.

It was impossible to say 'This is LIFE' and 'That is CONSCIOUSNESS'.

Consciousness was Life, and Life was Consciousness and was the 'Creative Power' of both; DIVINE UNIVERSAL MIND' beyond, within and behind the universe." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 11]

9. The inherent characteristic of the Loving Intelligent Creative Power was LAW & ORDER.
The undeviating order and reliability apparent in creation, even governing the tiny entities ('cells') within the body, were astonishing and far transcended any human endeavor. Therefore, the entire universe was operating under a system of perfect LAW & ORDER.
I realized on ever higher and higher levels of spiritual exaltation that the 'creative power' exhibited intelligent purposefulness and loving concern for all living things. I realized that life was not something nebulous or amorphous but an intelligent loving creative power which I could actually feel within myself as a tremendously heightened state of being, perception, radiance, ecstasy, joy, love. I knew myself to be one with it - filled with it - and I was one with everything around me and one with the sky and stars.
And - most wonderful and glorious of all - the very 'Nature' and 'Function' of this 'Father - Creative Power' was to work in order to create joy, beauty, and comfort to ensure mankind's well-being, to work within mankind to provide interior joy, health and comfort, and to work through mankind, inspiring him with new realization and understanding.
Wonderful vistas of glorious creativity came to mind. Once we became truly 'at one', purified channels and instruments of the 'Intelligent Creative Power', we could gradually ascend in consciousness until we truly expressed through our minds and hearts the very 'NATURE' of the 'Universal Creative Power'.
Then 'life on earth' would indeed become a 'state of heaven' at all times and we would enter into a state of eternal life! [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 15]

"(However, at the moment of creation, two BASIC IMPULSES came into being, ensuring individuality, and it was these which controlled mankind's consciousness.
These IMPULSES were explained to me in detail but this knowledge is reserved for a future Letter when you will be better able to understand it) ................................ ." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 17]

"With this vision I learnt a most valuable aspect of existence. Man himself is born with all the potential to make a beautiful life for himself but he, himself, by indulging his selfish desires and hatreds, creates a prison of misery for himself from which there was no escape until such times as he realizes the TRUTH OF EXISTENCE.
All the problems of harsh existence lay within the thought processes of man himself!
Only people's 'consciousness forms', their thoughts, words, feelings, actions created a dense barrier between their consciousness and the Universal Creative Consciousness interpenetrating the universe in every leaf, tree, insect, bird, animal and human being." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 17]

"What is the difference between the soul and psyche? I am now going to explain the difference which your earthly psychologists may dispute, but nonetheless, this is the truth. The Soul is the 'Divine Flame' - a metaphor used to describe the essence of Divine Life which is drawn into individual being at the moment of conception. LIFE FORCE takes on personal form and releases the energy of 'electrical force of activity' and the magnetic impulses of 'bonding - rejection' to embark on the intricate work of construction of the body.
"Therefore, you have, at the core of your being,

this is Divine Intelligence / Divine Love
Which is the powerful Divine Impulse to create, grow, nourish, nurture, heal, protect, fulfill every need, within a system of perfect law and order.
"This is the Reality which is your soul.
"Therefore, when you have overcome the ego impulses and invited the SOUL to hold dominion in your thoughts and feelings, you will be driven to express all of the Divine Impulses described above. You will be possessed by a desire to only promote the highest good of all living things and the universe itself. You will have become a true messenger from Divine Consciousness, expressing all Its qualities of Being.

'It is a tiny entity of 'consciousness knowledge'. It is the 'consciousness knowledge' of what it will become. It is a fragment of 'consciousness' drawn from 'Divine Creative Consciousness'.
'It is a fragment of mind power drawn from 'Father Mind Power' ... which, when planted in the earth and watered by rain, will begin to clothe itself with the visible 'matter' of which it possesses knowledge, deep within itself. This knowledge is true, it is firm, it is strong and undeviating. This self-knowledge embodied in the seed, is a conviction in 'consciousness'.
'All of life forms arise out of this one-pointed self-knowledge - a 'conviction of consciousness'.
This 'conviction of consciousness' is what separates the inanimate soil and rocks from all that lives and grows upon the face of the earth. Where there is no 'conviction of consciousness' or 'knowledge of identity' there is no growth. The consciousness within soil and rocks remains 'consciousness' in a dormant form." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 3, page 9]

"Visible things are but a manifestation of specific frequencies of vibration in consciousness which produces a 'SHIMMER OF MOTES OR PARTICLES' giving an appearance of solid 'matter'.
Each visible substance possesses its own unique vibrational frequency. A change in the rate of vibration produces a change in the appearance of 'matter'. As consciousness energies change so do the appearances of 'matter' change." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 3, page 19]

"Every single person who realises that from their eyes is radiated potent life-force to those at whom the vision is directed, can know that their glance, that penetrating look, that smiling gaze has benefited the one who received it. For everything we - yes, you and I, the CHRIST, think and do is an act of consciousness - and consciousness is life-force. With the activity of our minds, yours and mine, we shape our consciousness, our life-force into different forms which will bless or curse the environment." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 8]

"If you focus on the desire to love, to accept, to work with gladness in your heart, then everywhere you go you are shedding a consciousness of strength, blessing and growth." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 10]

"When I was in the desert in Palestine, I first perceived that the over-riding nature of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS Creativity, our SOURCE of BEING was INTENTION.
The Intention to create, plan and design - and then to bring forth that design by growing it, feeding, healing, protecting, and fulfilling its every need in a disciplined manner.

Both male and female have been evolved in physical form and consciousness to experience -
INTENTION and express it in all ways possible in their lives. This is the very first act of creativity.
Without INTENTION there would be no CREATION.
INTENTION is the origin of - and permeates - the whole of existence.
INTENTION defines the nature of the deed - loving or destructive.
The male and female have been individualised to experience and formulate
INTENTION in their lives.
This is the very first impulse of creativity." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 18]

"WE will leave you with these thoughts which we beg you will receive deeply into your consciousness and make good use of them in your daily lives. We strongly urge you to band together, irrespective of religious beliefs, in small groups to use the Letters as guide lines for your daily lives. Shed, if you can, your conditioning, and come together in true humility, as people willing to agree they know little of true spirituality - but are strongly desirous of learning how to enhance and spiritualise their lives." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 22]

"As many of you are aware, you are entering a new phase of world history, during the course of which it will be realised that no longer is the great divide between the wealthy and the poor.
The great divide will be in consciousness. The divide will be between those who have been able to find entrance into the higher spiritual consciousness and radiate love and acceptance equally to all - friends and foes - and who make it their goal to radiate Divine Consciousness into every facet of their daily lives - and those who remain encased within their ego-drives, seeking domination of the weak. They may appear to succeed for a while - but eventually they will fail and their suffering in their self-created darkness will be great.
These Letters will be the means of your moving out of darkness into LIGHT." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 22]

"As you seek to raise your frequencies of spiritual consciousness through radiating love to all unconditionally, so will you be going through a slow ASCENSION in CONSCIOUSNESS which will dynamically affect your physical health and your earthly conditions." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 22]

"And when I say: 'making true contact with It', I mean that the prayer of supplication for this benefit or that is not making true contact with your SOURCE OF BEING.
Your prayer is certainly received into the Source of Being, and an answer is frequently received swiftly and the need is fulfilled, even as you have asked. But true contact with the Source of your Being, is only experienced when you have sufficiently cleansed your consciousness of the gross human ego-drive and have spent some time in meditation and a regular emotionally powerful 'reaching out' in consciousness to your Source seeking contact and renewal and refreshment of spirit.

This is the true purpose behind existence. A constant and mutual reciprocation of communication between the Source of all Being and creation." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 5]

"To discover your true SOURCE of BEING, I ask you to take stock of the unimaginable and indescribable complexity and diversity of purposeful work plainly evident in penguins and pigs.
Can the human mind replicate any of the most basic of activities within - say - the digestive system, which swiftly summons up the requisite enzymes and hormones necessary for digestion.
How dare the finite mind, which is incapable of perceiving clearly the true creative process governed by instinctual knowledge, presume to state unequivocally - defying contradiction - that it understands the true origins of creation and the forces out of which creation took form? What arrogance! These men can only think according to what their eyes tell them.
I view the present scientific ignorance with loving compassion, a degree of amusement, and a great all consuming passion to puncture their pride. For, until someone can penetrate their self-satisfaction and position of infallibility, a true mating of Eternal Verities and human scientific knowledge can never take place. But it must take place; otherwise human spiritual evolution will remain at a standstill.
The scientific mind is too full of 'finitely' devised book lore, accepted formulas and equations, and the need for their fellows' approval, to permit mystical penetration by Higher Intelligences.
On my behalf, I ask readers of these Letters, to form an association to challenge Science and ask 'at what point in the evolution of the 'material' world' is CONSCIOUSNESS first discernible?" [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 12]

ALL (spiritual, unseen/seen/imagined) is CONSCIOUSNESS/AWARENESS
The primary comprehensive nature of CONSCIOUSNESS is AWARENESS.
It is not possible to have consciousness without possessing awareness.
All that you see, all that you touch, hear, feel, know is
made visible.
[Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 16]

"There is nothing in the universe that is not CONSCIOUSNESS made visible." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 17]

"Creation is the product of PRIMARY IMPULSES working individually and together - making impressions upon the other, fulfilling inbuilt needs imprinted within consciousness - these needs being, at the outset to increase and experience self-expression leading to further separation then - to restore a sense of inner security and comfort - to be re-united within the harmony of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS. Out of this driving force for a re-united harmony of being, came the male-female drive for re-union to recapture the bliss which is buried in the soul consciousness." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 23]

"By working together as a team, separately but inseparable, in the visible world, these twin impulses were the means by which the substance of 'matter' itself has been created out of the sublime 'UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS'.

One impulse of creativity is: the 'I'ness of ACTIVITY.
This impulse of activity is universal and stems from only one source.
'Activity' is a movement in CONSCIOUSNESS, and CONSCIOUSNESS in movement.
The other creative impulse possesses (figuratively speaking) two faces looking in opposite directions.
They are:

Pull towards>>>>>>>> the self<<<<<<<< Push away otherwise known as

Attract>>>>>>>> to - THE SELF - from <<<<<<<< Repel within CONSCIOUSNESS.

These are the ONLY means by which earthly existence has been achieved.

The entire universe is a manifestation of the 'Creative Power' active within these Twin Impulses of PHYSICAL BEING - creating 'matter' and individual form.
This is one of the fundamental 'secrets' of the universe.

I saw that the 'core' of the 'Personality' or 'ego' as it is now called, had been created
and was irresistibly imprinted with the magnetic impulse to ensure
For the protection of the individual 'I'ness
This was accomplished by using the two faces of the second Impulse of Being

BONDING - REJECTION to secure individuality.

[Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 25]

"This is why there was a struggle between my humanly entrenched Ego and my 'Father-Mother Consciousness' during the very strident temptations I experienced at the end of my enlightenment in the desert. Satan had nothing to do with the tug-of-war which took place within my consciousness. The war was waged between the

and the DIVINE REALITY which had made ITSELF known to me as

transcendent, yet with in me and which would gradually take over my individuality to an ever greater extent if I continually meditated and cleared my consciousness of selfish impulses." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 5, page 27]

"You must also understand - and accept - that consciousness energies are energies as real and active as are energies of heat and sound." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 7, page 12]

"Until that time of soul re-unification with Divine Consciousness, the psyche occupies the deepest recesses of your human consciousness and draws its awareness from your soul. It is the hidden instinct within you which knows right from wrong." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 7, page 166-167, (13)]

"Remember, at all times, that what you THINK about is what you are tuning into.
"Your thoughts are 'searchlights' making contact with what you seek.
"Remember that every 'thought' has its own frequency of vibrations in consciousness.
Believe, know this, for this is true. The more spiritual the thought, the higher the frequencies of vibration.
'Consciousness forms' embodied by words are not visible but are 'specific entities of being'.
"They have the life of consciousness within them. They are magnetised to like 'consciousness forms'. Like is drawn to like.
"Think 'dog' and visualise what you mean, and your thoughts are attuned to the dog species." [Christ Letters - Letter 8, page 24]

"A spontaneous and hearty burst of laughter is first experienced as a rush of rippling consciousness through the head, bringing a lightening of the entire consciousness. This is immediately followed by the physical 'ripple effect' of laughter, experienced as a light beating of breath on the diaphragm to break up any tension and to smooth away any residue of bitterness." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 9, page 14]

"LAUGHTER and your inner child. As you read these Letters and meditate and your levels of frequencies of consciousness vibrations are raised, you will discover that old mental patterns are no longer comfortable in your mind. You will seek ways and means of ejecting them from your consciousness. As you move upwards spiritually and are ever more desirous of unloading unwanted human ego drives, the conflict in your sensibilities will become increasingly burdensome, and you now long and pray for relief. You will find that when you turn to Divine Consciousness and passionately ask for Divine Assistance, the help will surely come. You will successfully get rid of unwanted thoughts and re-actions, and you will then discover that laughter becomes more and more spontaneous." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 9, page 14]

How does this spiritual teaching relate to New Science? As John Keely alluded to, such clarification of the Heart energy is necessary to guide one on her/his path toward greater knowingness, and its application to good use. This should be the definition of Science: application of Universal wisdom to daily life’s challenges. An increasingly heightened awareness is necessary to deal with increasingly more powerful methods of applying remedies to earthly ills. For example, genetic engineering requires a raised consciousness and conscience about the ramifications and use of the technology. If the technology is developed, what assurance is there that it will be used in wisdom instead of with greed or other misplaced motives? Only the Good Heart can make such an assurance. [Jesus, Good Heart]

Buckminster Fuller
“The vector equilibrium is the true zero reference of the energetic mathematics. Zero pulsation in the vector equilibrium is the nearest approach we will ever know to eternity and God: the zero phase of conceptual integrity inherent in the positive and negative asymmetries that propagate the differentials of consciousness.” [Buckminster Fuller, Synergetics]

Joanne Cremer
Some other questions for further contemplation:
1. Can human consciousness be influenced by external factors, or is it solely an innate quality?
2. Is the development of consciousness a gradual process, or is it a sudden occurrence?
3. Can consciousness be artificially created or replicated through technological means?
4. Do different cultures or societies have distinct interpretations of consciousness?
5. Can consciousness be modified or enhanced through various practices or techniques?
6 Are there any specific regions of the brain responsible for the emergence of consciousness?
7. Do animals possess a form of consciousness similar to that of humans?
8. Can consciousness exist independently of a physical body or brain?
9. Are there any limitations to human consciousness, or is it boundless?
10. Can altered states of consciousness, such as meditation or psychedelic experiences, provide insights into the nature of consciousness?
11. Does consciousness evolve or change over the course of an individual's lifetime?
12. Are there any ethical implications associated with manipulating or studying consciousness?
13. Can consciousness be transferred or transmitted between individuals or even across different species?
14. Does consciousness have any evolutionary advantages or purposes?
15. Can consciousness be quantified or measured objectively?
16 Does consciousness play a role in determining personal identity and self-awareness?
17. Are there any potential risks or dangers associated with exploring the depths of consciousness?
18. Can consciousness exist beyond the realm of the physical universe or in other dimensions?
19. Are there any cultural or historical factors that have influenced our understanding and perception of consciousness?
20. Can consciousness be influenced by the collective thoughts and beliefs of a society?

Rudolf Steiner
Basically in the universe there is nothing but consciousness.
Except for consciousness, everything else belongs in the domain of maya, or the great illusion.
You can find these facts in two places — in others as well — but especially in the description of the evolution of the earth from ancient Saturn to Vulcan in An Outline Of Occult Science, where the evolution from ancient Saturn to ancient Sun, from Sun to ancient Moon, from Moon to Earth, and so on, are described as stages of consciousness.
This means that if one wants to reach these important facts, he must ascend to a stage of cosmic events where they consist of stages of consciousness.
Therefore, if we are describing realities we can only describe various stages of consciousness. It is also included in another book published this summer: The Threshold of the Spiritual World. Shown there is how through a gradual ascension of the seer's vision it rises from the objects and processes around us, which disappear into nothingness, melt away so to speak, and finally reaches the region where there are only beings in various stages of consciousness.
So the true realities of the world are beings in the various stages of consciousness.
Due to the fact that we live in the human stage of consciousness, and in this stage of consciousness have no complete overview of the realities involved, the effect is that what is unreal appears to us as real." [Rudolf Steiner]
